On Road Driving

The on-road part of the test will last approximately one hour, and will include a wide variety of roads and traffic conditions.

You will be expected to demonstrate that you can move off smoothly and safely both uphill and downhill, and move off normally from the side of the road and at an angle. There will also be a period of 10-12 mins of independent driving.

Matters of Special Importance

The Standard

The examiner will expect you to drive to a standard comparable to that of the driving test for category B.


Driving on the road is approximately 80 per cent of the test, and as you already hold a full driving licence, the examiner can take you anywhere such as motorways, one-way streets or housing estates.

Not Required

You won't be required to make an emergency stop on the road. Reverse around the corner or reverse park. Or make a turn in the road.


Negotiating hazards and junctions dangerously, by not using good all-round observation.
